Tour Details

This is your opportunity to discover Old Québec’s history, architecture and culture! The cradle of French civilization in North America and the only walled city North of Mexico, Québec City and its ramparts are home to a myriad of treasures that will delight you. It's no secret that Old Québec is one of the city's main attractions. The walled city has a uniquely European flavor, with its narrow, winding streets and extensive array of boutiques, museums, and attractions.

In the company of a professional Québec guide, this walking tour will take you through all the important sites of one of the oldest European settlements in North America. You will meander next to Québec’s historical sites such as the Citadel/Musée Royal 22è Régiment. Located on Cape Diamant, the Citadel (which is also called the Gibraltar of the Americas) is a national historic monument and an official residence of the Governor General.

You will also walk by the Château Frontenac, which holds the Guinness World Record's title of "most photographed hotel in the world". Although several of Québec City's buildings are taller, the landmark hotel is perched atop a tall cape overlooking the Saint Lawrence River, affording a spectacular view for several kilometers. The building is the most prominent feature of the Québec City skyline as seen from across the St. Lawrence.

You will also spend time at the Place-Royale. Often referred to as the birthplace of French America, the Place-Royale is a small square with a big history. Samuel de Champlain chose this site to construct a trading post in 1608. It grew throughout the 17th and 18th centuries to become a bustling town marketplace and the heart of business and industry in Québec City. Located in Québec’s picturesque Lower Town, the historic plaza is now a lively social center and a very popular visitor attraction.

This tour is one of the best ways to see this beautiful city and uncover a few hidden Québec City sites!
